Once again, India – The Men In Blue has proved that they possess some extra killing instinct while playing against Pakistan in World Cup.

Yesterday, on March 19, 2016, India defeated Pakistan by a margin of six wickets, that too in front of legend Sachin Tendulkar, who was there in the VIP stand.

India successfully chased down the score of 119; thanks to Virat Kohli, who made a scintillating 55 off 37 balls.
